We're back!

Well, I'm sure a few of you super observant folks may have noticed I've been absent on the responding front the past two weeks.  I have a good excuse...we were on vacation!  You know my rules with vacation, complete social cut off to soak in the sights with my honey.

We were supposed to do a road trip to Montana/Wyoming and see Yellowstone National Park but that didn't work out due to potential weather issues.  I'm glad we chose to forego that because this is what it looked like there 2 weeks before we left:

We quickly had to change modes in January and figure out where we wanted to go.  The Mr was dying to recreate his childhood vacations and I was not but decided if I could fit in a few destinations of my liking, I'd throw him a bone.  He wanted to go to Virginia Beach and Rehoboth Beach.  I wanted to go to Savannah and Charleston.  An extensive search showed us that despite going in low season, the options for Virginia Beach were not up to my rental standards.  But not too far from there was the Outer Banks area and while the Mr wasn't down with it at first, he came around when I showed him the place we'd be renting.

So we started off with 5 nights in Savannah GA then moved on to 4 nights in Charleston SC.  We made our way up the coast to Outer Banks for 3 nights and rounded things out with a 4 night stay in Rehoboth Beach, DE in accommodations way better than the Mr was used to there since it was usually the ol' Econo Lodge for them back in the day.

Then it was time for the looooooooong drive home and besides a stop in DC for some Georgetown Cupcakes, we throttled through and made it home late last night.  So we're probably sleeping while you're reading this but I'll round up some pics to share over the next few days.

All I do know is that we're getting back in the swing TODAY on water, exercise and food because we've got a lot of southern hospitality and beach food to work off even with as good as we were trying to be!

What did you guys do this weekend?

  1. Nothing so exciting as your vacation. My folks visited and I got caught up on school work, some housework, got some plants in for the summer, and some yardwork. Woo hoo. I hope you had a great trip.

  2. Grandsons first birthday party and a visit from the in-laws. Nothing as exciting and fun as your last two weeks. Today I'm meeting ladies I used to work with for lunch. We're taking pizza to a friends house who was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Can't wait to see your pictures.

  3. I traveled to a cousin's college graduation and to visit with my aunt who came from far away to see her granddaughter graduate.

    Can't wait to hear about your trip! You went to a couple of places I've visited before and a couple of places close to where I live but far enough away to make a vacation of.

    I hope you had a great trip!

  4. So glad you had a great trip!! One of my hopes is to make it to the east coast at some point. I've been to a few states, but not the main ones I want to visit. I've been to most other states, but the east coast is on my list.

    The weekend wasn't too good with bringing one of my pooches to the vet--again--with his not eating that great. He's better now after some medication, so I'm very relieved about that. Although forking out $700+ wasn't fun, this is exactly why I have insurance for both of them so I'll get most of that back. Then my female issued reared their ugly head Saturday and Sunday and it was brutal. Actually had to leave a playoff hockey game because I couldn't make it from one bathroom to the next without a big mess. Oy..... I have a procedure in my future I just know it. Bah!
